This Weekend...

So far this weekend:

I saw Super 8 last night at the Imax. I liked the nostalgic feel of the film - it envokes films I adored as a child such as The Goonies, E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Poltergeist, and Stand By Me, yet it also lacked something. I was diappointed by the 'reveal' of what it is the children discover, and I'm still not a big fan of CGI being used for monsters/aliens etc - they just don't look organic enough, give me the puppets and animatronics from 80s films anyday.
I also tried a Krispy Kreme Creme Brulee doughnut. It was sooooo good, and I got some pretty envious looks from strangers as I devoured it.

Today I did some yoga, tried the new Special K chocolate and strawberry flavour and slept a lot.
I want to do some writing this weekend, make that NEED to, as I have once again fallen out of a writing routine. I also have an overwhelming amount of tv shows, films, magazines and books to watch/read.
I really really fancy a glass of wine too.

New films I want to see are Studio Ghibli's new film Arrietty and Audrey Tautou's Beautiful Lies.
